Introducing the Fado Notebook from Terra Lusa, inspired by the expressive and melancholic music genre of Fado. Originating in Portugal in the 1820s, Fado is often associated with pubs, cafés, and restaurants, and is known for its ability to convey the hard realities of daily life through song. The music balances both resignation and hopefulness, with a sense of longing and loss described by the Portuguese word “saudade.” Fado music typically features one or two 12-string guitars, one or two violas, and sometimes a small 8-string bass.
Praised by UNESCO as an “example of good practices,” Fado is described on their website as the “urban popular song of Portugal.” The Fado Notebook is part of Terra Lusa’s collection of products that pay tribute to Portuguese Cultural Heritage, with each item representing 800 years of history, culture, and tradition.
The collection includes notebooks, wrist watches, fans, eco bags, mini umbrellas, glasses cases, microfibre cloths, and adjustable book covers, all divided into themes of Portuguese roots and designed with quality and contemporary design in mind. Celebrate the rich musical heritage of Portugal with the Fado Notebook.
